Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Mark of the Beast"

Description
: In honor of Farktography's 666th contest, show us pictures of tattoos, devils, demons, beasts (sweet furry house pets need not apply), or 6's.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

I don't know if it qualifies, but some schlub tagged it and it still wound up in a store in South Dallas.

That's actually beyond the typical post-processing for Farktography. If you have the original image, though, that should qualify if you'd like to submit it.

does this fall under the rules? The only editing was to make it all black and white, except to leave the color on the devil's head. If not, remove the voting ability, and will do one either alll black and white, or all color.

No, that's the "color pop" technique and falls outside the usual processing rules. A full color of that would look great, though.

I found one of those in my front yard a couple years back.  I never did identify it or determine if the pointy sac is part of it's body design or perhaps an egg sac.  I had a challenge getting a good depth of focus in my images of it.  You did well.

Thanks, and yeah, I have a few dozen where depth of focus was bad as a hurriedly kept adjusting while they spun webbing.

Spinybacked orbweaver, so creepy looking! I haven't seen one in person, but the first time I saw a picture (which was a long ago Farktography thread, now that I think about it), I thought it looked almost fake.  Apparently only the females have the spikes, but they're pretty harmless to humans.

This was a fun theme to honor our 666th. Thanks to everyone for helping make Farktography a highlight of every week for me!

While I'm at it, I'd like to take a moment to offer a warm welcome back to postlibyan who was gone for the better part of the year. It was great seeing you again this week, and we hope to see you back next week!

Results aren't final until the thread closes sometime after midnight, but at this point, congrats to fellow top finishers beerrun, CiliarySpasm, Ennuipoet, FuLinHyu, and g0ats3x! Final winner will, as always, receive all due praise and glory via the weekly Fark NotNewsletter after the thread closes.

See everyone next week for "Shades of Gray 3"!
